Just like dark-washed jeans and a little black dress, leggings are a necessity in every woman’s wardrobe. You can dress them up with your favorite tunic, wear them down with a t-shirt or a hoodie, wear them to the gym, and even in the office! With so many different brands, colors, materials and styles available, finding a good pair of leggings can be a challenge — especially for women who are blessed in the derrière department.
Seriously, if your packing a little more junk in the trunk, the struggle can be real when searching for the right pair of leggings (and bottoms in general). For girls with big butts, oftentimes, leggings fit too small in the butt area and fine everywhere else or vice versa. Sometimes you’ll find a perfect pair only to realize they’re baggy in the crotch area. Trust me, it is difficult to find perfect fitting leggings when you have a big booty. For the J. Lo’s, Beyonce’s and Nicki Minaj’s of the world, look no further. Here are the best leggings for your pear-shaped figure.
Under Armour ColdGear® Reactor ($79.99)
You definitely want to have these leggings in your closet if you are a runner. Leggings have a tendency to ride down on girls with big butts. But not these! With insulation that keeps you warm without overheating, these leggings are ultra-tight and have a second-skin feel so they stay put as they hug your body.
“I just purchased my 3rd pair of these running tights. I love the high waist band. It snugly holds everything in and there’s no chance of your tights falling down,” says JerseyGirl225 in Under Armour’s reviews.
These Forever 21 leggings are one of SheFinds’ favorites! They are high-waisted to prevent slipping and rolling. With ribbed accents down the sides and moisture management to repel body heat and sweat, these leggings are a must-have if you have a big booty. Choose from colors wine (shown above) or eggplant.
Alo Moto Leggings ($110)
The Alo Moto Leggings are perfect for girls with a big bum as they engineered to lift, sculpt, contour and smooth. The matte-shine design and breathable mesh fabric make these leggings not only a good fit but stylish as well! Choose from 11 different colors and and five different sizes.
“These are by far my favourite leggings, they fit perfect,” says Alexa in an Alo review. “They move amazingly and are so beautiful. I also love that they are thicker.”
These tri-colored leggings come in 5 different sizes and are equipped with “Textured Compression,” a tonal-texture fabric that has four-way stretching and prevents sweat-wicking. These leggings are mid-weight and include a hidden waistband pocket.
“I am OBSESSED. I’m 5’2, 122lbs, with a small waist but slightly larger thighs/butt. Ordered a small (wasn’t sure if I should get M) and they fit like a glove,” says Liz in an Outdoor Voices review. “They’re really flattering and keep everything nice and tight.”
